Brilliant Home Hack: Kitty Litter for Nasty Spills

Spills are a messy, inevitable part of life. From Junior tipping his cup of grape juice in the kitchen to Dad making an oily mess on the garage floor, at some point a liquid is going to make a mess on your floor surface.

Fortunately, there is a low-cost way to get that floor as right as rain.

Sprinkle a little kitty litter on the spill, and let it sit while it does its magic. Over time, the kitty litter will break down the spill. It’s probably best to give it an overnight soak so it can really do its thing.

In the morning, pull out the vacuum and suck up the kitty litter. Voila! The spill should be completely dry.

Check out this video above to see the process in action.
